Apple Mac OS X Server

Berkeley Software Design, Inc. (BSDI)

Darwin OS
Open Source Project at Apple.

DesktopBSD combines the stability of FreeBSD, the usability and functionality of KDE and the simplicity of specially developed software to provide a system that's easy to use and install. Based on FreeBSD 5.x but aimed at the Desktop User.

The DragonFly BSD Project
Offshoot of FreeBSD. From the website: "DragonFly is an operating system and environment designed to be the logical continuation of the FreeBSD-4.x OS series."

An advanced BSD UNIX operating system for PC-compatibles, developed and maintained by a large team of individuals. FreeBSD offers advanced networking, performance, security and compatibility features.

Lites - The 4.4 BSD Lite Server
A 4.4 BSD Lite-based server and emulation library that provides free Unix functionality to a Mach-based system.


A free, highly portable UNIX-like operating system available for many platforms, from 64bit alpha servers to handheld devices.

A volunteer-produced multi-platform 4.4BSD-based UNIX-like operating system emphasizing portability, standardization, correctness, proactive security and integrated cryptography.

PC-BSD has as its goal to be an easy to install and use desktop OS, which is built on the FreeBSD operating system. To accomplish this, it currently has a graphical installation, which will enable even UNIX novices to easily install and getup and running. The system comes loaded with the "K" Desktop Environment (KDE), which lets users immediately sit down to a familiar interface. Also developed exclusively for PC-BSD is the PBI system, which lets users download and install their applications in a self-extracting & installing format, similar to InstallShield® on Windows®. Based on FreeBSD 6.x and aimed at the Personal Computer Desktop user.

Pocket BSD

TrustedBSD Project
Trusted operating system extensions to the FreeBSD operating system.

m0n0wall is based on a bare-bones version of FreeBSD. m0n0wall is a project aimed at creating a complete, embedded firewall software package with all the standard features of commercial firewall boxes. The entire system configuration is stored in a single XML text file and its boot-time configuration is done with PHP.

pfSense firewall
pfSense is a open source firewall derived from the m0n0wall operating system platform with radically different goals such as using Packet Filter, FreeBSD 6.X (or DragonFly BSD when ALTQ and CARP is finished) ALTQ for excellent packet queueing and finally an integrated package management system for extending the environment with new features.
